If you are looking for new, bright and shiny then continue down the road. But if you want to experience old-time beach living the Sea Foam is for you. Large rooms well maintained with microwaves and fridges. There are also efficiencies for those who want to cook. Private balconies on the 2nd floor overlooking the ocean. The staff is helpful...

We just spent 3 nights here in room 39. Room has an awesome view of the ocean and Jennette's Pier (just a block or two down the beach). Room and bathroom appeared clean. Room was comfortable enough for my family of four. Had good size refrigerator (not a mini but not full-size either). Wi-fi signal was not the strongest at... More

Came this year to find a very unsatisfactory room. Filthy shower black dirty moldy floor, stove without proper burner plates causing the burners to not fit properly causing a fire hazard. Bottom of stove missing, mold on the floorboards, leaking water on the windowsill, old beds with busted springs..horrible, they are spending money to paint outside and fix flower beds... More

This was enough, great view of beach, room was from the 60's, really needs updating in a major way. Wi-fi not really a stong signal. Could be cleaner. Glad all I had to do was to sleep there one night. Not a bad price for one night. Took forever to get rooms ready. Not even ready at check in time.... More

If you're all for just swimming, fishing, and water sports, this is a quaint getaway right on the beach. Our room #20, however, was a nightmare! The bathroom needed to be condemned and we killed at least 50 insects in the room throughout the night. Retro...yes! I "get it" makes a nice touch in all the new development. Nothing wrong... More

I adore older, mom 'n' pop hotels. I love the retro feel, the paneling, the tile bathrooms, the sense of the Great American Roadtrip. So, I'm biased towards a hotel like the Sea Foam. But, it's a darn nice motel! We got a corner, ocean-front efficiency. Two queen beds with nice, firm mattresses. A shower/tub combo in yellow and white... More

If you are looking for upscale or fancy, skip this. If you want an incredible ocean view, good value, friendly people and beach front location, this is the place. The Sea Foam is a historical place with a sense of nostalgia. Jeanette's pier is a short walk down the beach and a beautiful sight. To enjoy the beach for an... More

There was a shopping center across the street so it made it so easy to do a lot of things in walking distance:) I had... More
